This time, I tried to be a bit more careful with contrast, and not amp it up unecessarily. I previously, for some reason, had the notion that I need to get the whole value-range in my paintings (darkest black - brightest white),, which is not at all a must-have!
And I think I achieved the overall mood I had in mind??
